Dennis announces intentions

Hershel Dennis is a 5-11, 180-pounder from Long Beach (Calif.) Poly and Hershel just came back from an official visit to Oregon where he enjoyed his trip but also let us know where he stood in the recruiting process.

"I had a good time on my trip," Dennis said. "I really like the coaches a lot there and you can tell there's a lot of construction going on at their stadium. I like their offense a lot and the way they run with the ball."

Dennis said that there were 4 players on his official visit to Eugene. "I think two of them were from the Sacramento area," he said. "And then there was me and Darnell (Bing)." Did Darnell like the visit? Oh yeah, he had a good time," Hershel said. He added, "But Darnell is all about USC right now."

With Bing apparently leaning hard towards Troy, is his teammate also going that way? "Yeah, I'm a soft commit for USC right now," Dennis said. "I might take one more trip, but I'm not sure where I would go." What would it take for Hershel to change his mind? "Me," was his simple, one-word answer.

So while it's not official yet, Dennis is acknowledging that the process is near it's final destination. "Yeah, it's really looking that way right now," he said.
